1 Oh, come and praise the Lord today,
And together laud His name;

Glory, glory, to our King!

2 All ye that feel His mighty love,
And the Spirit’s burning fire,

In the light of heaven’s word. [Refrain]

4 Oh, sing like thunder’s mighty sound,
Sing the story of the blood;
Salvation tidings echo round,
Glory, glory be to God! [Refrain]
